Default Web Screen Width and Default Web Screen Height determine the size used in the html file. You can modify the size in the html file later.

Default Screen Width and Default Screen Height are used by the Web Player when entering fullscreen mode through the context menu in the Web Player at runtime.

Customizing your Resolution Dialog


The Resolution Dialog, presented to end-users

You have the option of adding a custom banner image to the Screen Resolution Dialog in the Standalone Player. The maximum image size is 432 x 163 pixels. The image will not be scaled up to fit the screen selector. Instead it will be centered and cropped.
